Love using this product because I have a lot of black heads and this clears it right up! I like the fact that you do not have to use a washcloth or loofa you can just scrub and wash off!

I've been using this products for about a month now. I use it as part of my morning and night routine. And it leaves my face so refreshed without drying my face. I highly recommend it.

Really good at getting rid of acne fast. It isn't that expensive and it is definitely worth it. It leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth and is especially good with big pimples or zits

This is a bit abrassive for the face but on the arms and chest its a great scrub. It helps to clear any dry skin away and help to keep acne from being as prevelent.

This is by far my favorite facial product! I use it every day, however, I learned fast that if I didn't moisturize it would dry out my face. But, it smells amazing and feels amazing too!

I always go back to this product. I've tried tons of cheap and expensive exfoliators..this is my favorite! Just don't scrub too hard, or it might irritate your skin

My wife and I have both been using it this product for about a year now and we HIGHLY recommend it. Does its job, and doesn't leave your face dry or leave a film behind. Wonderful stuff.

I used this for a while and really liked it. It really helps to keep you skin clean. Now I switch out different face cleaners, but this one is worth a try for sure.
